Monochromatic Orchid Oasis – Softly Sophisticated

As I started creating this card for the Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Instagram hop, I realised that I really hadn’t extensively used Orchid Oasis in it’s tenure as an In-Color. I’m glad I’ve got to spotlight it before it leaves us in a couple of months.

Every card has an idea that it starts with and for this one it was those little flowers from the Softly Sophisticated stamp set. These were stamped and fussy cut and although it took a little bit of time it was worth the effort. This stamp set is part of a bundle which is a Sale-A-Bration reward. You can get it free until 29th February with a $180 purchase.

For the background I blended ink through a mask and then stamped the words from the Quiet Meadow stamp set while the mask was in place.

Here’s how I created the splattered look behind the flowers.

FOCAL POSTAGE STAMP
  • Blend Orchid Oasis ink around the edges
  • Use a Water Painter to splatter Craft ink refill on the postage stamp, flicking the brush against the cap. The refill needs to be a little runny.
  • Using the Water Painter, add Craft ink around the edges of the die cut
  • Leave to completely dry
  • Stamp leaves and dots in Tuxedo Black ink

I added some ink blending on the matte layer which was embossed with the Softly Sophisticated Embossing Folder. This created depth against the card base.

Grateful for You – Inspirational Sketches #gdp430

Hello everyone, Welcome to a new week. I love the colour palette of today’s card. I didn’t set out to create with this but it just turned out this way and I love the beautiful, beachy tones of this that I’ll probably be using it again.

Inspired by the sketch at Global Design Project Challenges I used the bird from the Inspirational Sketches stamp set as my main image. This stamp set is just my style and I love the artistic look of it.

This sketch is a really classic layout and the offset design lends itself to so many interpretations.

STAMPED BIRD

After picking my Designer Series Paper, I then chose my stamp set. The bird was inked up in Boho Blue then I wiped off the beak, feet and branches with a paper towel and added the Crumb Cake Marker to it before stamping the image. This iwas then coloured in Watercolour Pencils of Coastal Cabana, Balmy Blue, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Basic Gray.

OFFSET PANELS

To create the offset panels, I cut a piece of Poetic Expressions Designer Series Paper at 13.3 cm x 9.0 cm. I added a die cut Deckled Rectangle on top which was embossed with the Timeworn Type Embossing Folder.

Banners die cut using the All That dies were embellished with some flowers die cut from the Kraft Note Cards. The natural tones of the Kraft work well against the Boho Blue. A Linen Thread bow added the perfect finishing touch.

Colour Palette Garden Meadow card with Flower Filled Wheelabarrow

I coloured in the wheelbarrow in Lost Lagoon – a nice change to the usual neutral colours. Multi-coloured flowers add to the spring feel of this card and tie in with the background flowers. Designer Series Paper, many times, helps me with selecting colours for my projects as the hard work has been done for me. It makes it so easy to select my coordinating Cardstock and embellishments to complete my project.

I added a tone-on-tone sheet of DSP from the same pack to bring in a neutralising layer in the centre inbetween all the colours.
